Bryan Wayne Hulsey Sentenced to Death for Murder of Glendale Police Officer

PHOENIX – A Maricopa County jury imposed a sentence of death by lethal injection against Bryan Wayne Hulsey (D.O.B. 11/26/1973) for the 2007 murder of Glendale Police Officer Anthony Holly. Hulsey was also sentenced to a term of 9 years for the attempted murder of Glendale Officer David Goita.

“The jury’s decision to impose the death penalty against Bryan Hulsey is a just punishment for the senseless slaughter of a public servant,” said Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery. “The family of Anthony Holly has waited far too long for this result, but nonetheless justice has been served,” he added.

On February 19, 2007 Glendale Police Officers Anthony Holly and David Goita conducted a traffic stop in the 5200 block of North 60th Avenue. Bryan Hulsey was a passenger in the vehicle. During the course of the traffic stop, Hulsey exited the vehicle and confronted both of the officers and then fired a .357 handgun, striking and killing Officer Holly. Officer Goita returned fire, striking and injuring Hulsey who was subsequently taken into custody.

A Maricopa County Grand Jury indicted Hulsey on February 28, 2007 one count of first degree murder, one count of attempted first degree murder and one count of misconduct involving weapons. Over the next seven years, five successive teams of defense attorneys were appointed to represent Hulsey, four of which withdrew from the case.

Trial began with jury selection on May 12, 2014. The jury returned guilty verdicts on all counts on July 28, 2014. The count of misconduct involving weapons was dismissed.
